Take out the guess work (and headache) of online marketing

Marketing consulting + full service SEO.

The website marketing plan for when you don't know what you need.

Building a business is getting harder.

You used to be a big fish in a small pond, now you’re competing for attention with huge ad budgets and adorable cat memes.

Constantly posting on social media, pouring your dwindling profits into Google’s pockets, hoping things turn around.

You’re getting emails every month telling you “I have had a look at your website and your SEO is shit, we have the *secret* formula to guarantee the #1 spot on Google. Just click this link!”

(promise you’ll never click the link)

You might even get phone calls from sales people telling you the same things. I know we do (and this is literally our job!)

You know that digital marketing is the key, but how do you know what you need to invest in first? How do you get it right? Do you start with SEO? Paid ads on Google? Jump on the Tik Tok bandwagon? 

We have been working in the digital marketing space for nearly 2 decades. Things have evolved so much, that what worked great for our clients just 12 months ago is almost obsolete now. It’s hard enough for us to keep up while working in the field every day, let alone business owners with only a couple of hours here and there! 

Most Digital Marketing agencies will offer you a free consultation, then pitch their SEO, PPC, Socials and/or email all as separate services. 

At Thorn Creative, we work closely with many small businesses that just can’t afford this. Sometimes a PPC campaign alone is enough to blow their whole advertising budget and that’s not including ad spend! 

A hybrid digital marketing support plan

Get the technical stuff done for you, and support for everything else in one day each month.

What that could look like

We do the technical bit

We'll take care of the technical stuff like ongoing SEO, connecting email API keys, Analytics and a whole lot more. We'll also dig into your competitors and conduct keyword research to use across all of your digital marketing platforms.

You do the social bit (with our help)

We strongly believe that in most cases, the best person for social media posting is the business owner themselves, or senior management because no one knows your product or service better than you. While you will post your content, we can help with Canva templates, show you how to use hashtags and write for web.

We monitor the data collection bit

We will setup tracking for all the digital marketing activities you do online so you can measure what works, and what doesn't over time. Sometimes reading reports from SEO/PPC companies can be really confusing with all the industry jargon, so we simplify this and phrase it in terms that you'll understand.

Together, we'll do the planning bit

With the technical, social and data collection sorted, we'll schedule a bi-monthly meeting to discuss your marketing goals and analyse the results so far. Using that information we can make key decisions about campaigns that are/are not working and what to do about it.
